Blue Jays' Joe Smith: Taking over setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is in line to take over the team's setup role on a regular basis, Jays Journal reports.

With Joe Biagini having moved to the rotation and Jason Grilli struggling (7.71 ERA and 1.79 WHIP), Smith will see more high-leverage chances moving forward. The 33-year-old owns a career-best 13.3 K/9 and 2.01 FIP through 23 appearances (21 innings) this year. Over his 11-plus seasons, Smith's tallied 187 holds -- fourth-most in MLB history -- along with 41 wins and 29 saves while only being charged with 27 blown saves over 662 games (all in relief). The right-hander has proven to be reliable in high-leverage situations, so he should be added in all leagues that reward holds. Additionally, he's next in line to take on the closer role in case Roberto Osuna is unavailable or loses effectiveness.

After pitching in back-to-back games, Smith will get the night off. Those in daily transaction leagues that count holds will want proceed accordingly. Smith has three strikeouts in three innings so far this season.

Blue Jays' Joe Smith: Struggles Wednesday against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith pitched one inning, allowing two runs on three hits while strike out one Tiger in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game.

Smith's spring debut didn't go well as he surrendered a pair of doubles and a hard-hit single before getting out of the frame. The 11-year-veteran's numbers have been headed in the wrong direction in recent seasons, but he's still expected to make the team's Opening Day roster as a middle reliever. With the Jays' bullpen being strong on the back end, Smith will be limited to low-leverage situations.

Blue Jays' Joe Smith: Inks one-year deal with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith reached an agreement Sunday with the Blue Jays on a one-year contract, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

With a 3.46 ERA and 40:18 K:BB ratio over 52 innings with the Angels and Cubs last season, Smith's numbers took a dramatic step back compared to previous years, forcing the 33-year-old to settle for a short-term contract. Though the Blue Jays lack much high-end talent in their bullpen, Smith will still likely have to settle for low-leverage middle relief duties with his new team, as Jason Grilli and Joe Biagini profile as the top setup men for closer Roberto Osuna.
